Asked to explain what the track is about, Spark from the band says:
"The Waiting Game is the most upbeat song on Precious Things. The song starts with a melodic bass line I came up while working with the song’s drum loop. I handle the lead vocal in the verse, we sing harmony in the chorus and Juno takes over for the middle section. “Messages sending / It’s never ending and never enough” really says it all. Even though the lyrics talk about frustration of being apart, the music is quite happy sounding. This creates a nice conflict between words and music. Early response to this song has been very positive. We hope you enjoy!"
To create the video, the band one again teamed up with acclaimed director Pierce G. Wilson who commented:
"The Waiting Game is such a universally relatable song; I feel like we’ve all felt like we are “stuck in the waiting game” at some point in a relationship. Despite how abstract the characters are, everyone can identify and feel the emotions of the couple while they are sitting on the bench, inching closer and closer to holding hands. The photography theme in this video is meant to tie in with the concept of The Waiting Game, as each photo is a world frozen in its exact place; in a perpetual state of waiting. I wanted to bring that concept out of the photo and into the world of the video, which is why time freezes during each camera flash."
The track itself is undoubtedly one of the strongest on the bands' album and showcases their talents perfectly. Peppermint Heaven may be in an industry where the competition is fierce but with their sound and style, they're a welcome breath of fresh air which hopefully more fans will catch wind of in the coming weeks and months.
